Hope and Healing – Recovery from Trauma

Advocacy Network for Children is excited to offer a new, free support program in Adams County, IL! Please call and register prior to the first session.

Our program provides support to heal from the pain of sexual abuse and helps reunite your family. We want all individuals that have faced abuse, as well as their families, to receive treatment that will help mend the effects caused by sexual abuse.

The goal for this group is to reduce the stigma that comes with abuse services, gain support and build coping skills for children and their caregivers. Some topics we will cover in the meetings are common reactions to stress, feeling identification, relaxation and problem solving, and preparing for the future.

Program Information –

• For children and their caregivers
• Children 8-18 years old welcome
• Beginning in September
• Meetings are held once a week for six weeks
• After the six weeks, the program will meet once a month.

Morgan County Residents Stepping Up for CASA

Morgan County CASA in Jacksonville, IL has sworn in their second group of CASA Volunteers. Advocacy Network for Children is so lucky to have people to speak up for abused or neglected children in court. Without them, more children could become victimized and may be lost in an overburdened child welfare system. Please tell them they are wonderful and congratulate them because they are Super Heros to the children.
